The purpose of this course is to introduce you to the Interactive Metronome (IM), an evidence-based and powerful patented rhythm intervention with broad application that leverages technology to improve the brain’s efficiency and performance.

Timing & rhythm are critical developmental skills that reflect the degree of synchronization between neural networks in the brain and greatly influence the acquisition of cognitive, communicative, sensory, motor and academic skills. It is evident from peer-reviewed research that the perception and reproduction of timing & rhythm sequences is markedly deficient compared to typically developing peers in the following conditions:

  • Auditory Processing Disorder
  • Dyslexia and other reading disorders
  • Speech and Language Disorders
  • ADHD
  • Autism Spectrum Disorders
  • Sensory Processing Disorders
  • Developmental Coordination Disorder
  • Concussion and Traumatic Brain Injury

Observable symptoms of poor timing and rhythm include trouble with:

  • attention
  • working memory
  • executive functions
  • processing speed
  • auditory comprehension
  • articulation and other speech impairments
  • language and literacy development
  • math and other areas of academic achievement
  • dyspraxia
  • disruptive behavior and/or sensory over/under sensitivities

Ongoing research at Harvard University School of Medicine, Northwestern University and other esteemed centers of academic excellence is providing vital information about both the clinical and biological impact of Interactive Metronome.

There is no prerequisite to attend this introductory course.
